Vietnamese Pork Chop

This is such a simple and flavoursome dish to use with a pork chop. I have made this a few times before and every time I just love it. This time I didn't have shallots though and used green onions instead. I much prefer the shallot version and will definitely make sure I used them next time.

I like to serve this with some rice, fried egg and an asian type coleslaw. All of these components work really well together I think.

Frying the green onion and garlic

Add in the sauces

Put in the pork chops and add water

After 10 minutes turn the pork chops over

Carrot grated for the salad

Cabbage and Herbs Added

Dressing all mixed together

Everything on the plate ready to eat!
